Ghost Stories from Haunted Places

 

The USS Lexington

The USS Lexington
Has had a very long history of service to our great Nation. It was one of the major aircrafts carriers during WW11. Many times it was target of kamikazes and torpedo attacks. It got the nickname of “the blue ghost” because Tokyo rose radio broadcasters made constant claims the Lexington had been destroyed. Of course this was not true, prompting the Japanese to call it a ghost ship since it always returned to battle. It was decommissioned in 1947 and sits in Corpus Christi, Texas as a popular tours attraction.

Many stories have emerged from tourists and former crew members aboard the ship. One such story is of a ghost name Charlie who resides in one of the engine rooms many tourist have complemented on the wonderful tour guide while in engine 2 dressed in full navy uniform. But, there is no tour guide as it is a self guided tour through the ship. There has also been reports of smelling food while going through the kitchen or hearing noises and screams while passing through an area where soldiers died. Many paranormal teams have investigated the ship as well finding evidence of some kind of presence aboard the ship. Ghosts or not visit the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, Tx. You will get some great history from the ship or perhaps your own ghost story.
